Clowney is a much better DE to play TE.much more athletic than Watt and think he could get separation from most LB trying to cover him unlike JJ who maybe has to many injuries on that body.

maybe right with picking a Patriot but wrong guy,nobody would want to block Trent Brown,6 foot 8 and 380lbs.

Next... two Pass Rushers
Blount or Greg Olsen if you are converting a skill position.
Trent Williams or Taylor Lewan if your just taking OT.

I'll decide on which two pass rushers get into the team tonight!

I'm thinking our defensive formation should try and make use of the offensive talent pool and go with 5 defensive backs? (FS, SS, CBx2, Slot CB)

So next, some Linebacker suggestions please.

Sticking with the TE's..... Evan Engram. 6'3, 240. 4.4 40. Sub 7 second 3 cone drill. Thats 'modern linebacker' size and athleticism.

Who better to run with TE's in coverage than..... a TE!

In the same sort of pattern, who better to close on and thump the hell out of running backs than Derrick Henry?

Both of those are in.

Time to build up our Offensive Line try and decide where your suggestions will play along the O-Line.

Offensive Line players tend to be taller than Defensive Line players, the majority of the top Offensive Line players are between 6ft4 and 6ft7 and weigh 300-330lbs. The tackles tend to be slightly taller than the guards and centers.

Some that I thought would fit:

Calais Campbell - 6ft8, 300lbs. One of the tallest defensive line players with a good amount of weight on him, played on both the outside and the inside. I think he'd make a good starting left tackle for us. Very similar build to Taylor Lewan

Fletcher Cox 6ft4 310lbs
Ndumakong Suh 6ft4 313lbs
Michael Brockers 6ft5 305lbs
Linval Joseph 6ft4 329lbs
Cameron Heyward 6ft5 295lbs
Malik Jackson 6ft5 290lbs
Cam Jordan 6ft4 287lbs

Damon Harrison 6ft3 355lbs. A lot heavier than most offensive line players, could we put him in on the inside?

Aaron Donald 6ft1 285lbs. Undersized, but with his talents I think we should put him in at Guard or Center?

Deforest Buckner would make for a good OT. 6'7, 34.5" arms, big hands too, 11. 75". All the better for controlling pass rushers.

I like Fletcher Cox at OG. Probably a slightly better athlete than Zack Martin and a similar size.

I think you do benefit from having a guard who can really move defenders off the line, but at what point does size become detrimental? Would Linvel Joseph be a better choice than Snacks Harrison? I think Joseph would pair nicely with Cox.
